Opening Session

Progress Towards Net-Zero

- Challenges, Opportunities & Achievements

The UK and several other countries now aim to deliver “net-zero” by 2050, broadly in line with advice from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). What role can state and non-state actors play in developing the low carbon economy, enabling us to reach net-zero? How are corporate sustainability leaders tackling the climate crisis and what progress is being made?


Global insights on strategies and innovations to create the zero-carbon economy of the future will be discussed in this session.
